What SmartWitness Customers are Saying
"SmartWitness, when utilized alongside our other disciplines, is a massive leap forward and one which has had and will have an enormous impact on our accident costs."
"Great camera, a real life saver recently when a lorry driver put me into the curb and claimed it was my fault. They have accepted full responsibility due to the video evidence being so conclusive. Paid for itself ten times over in my opinion."
"We put the system in our vehicles in June last year, mainly because our insurer had asked for what we felt was a higher than reasonable increase in our premium... we agreed to put the cameras in and the insurer agreed to reduce the premium!"
"In May of 2012 my vehicle was struck by the outer edge of a rain-wrapped EF-5 tornado. The windows were blown out and the vehicle filled with mud and water. The entire event was recorded on my SmartWitness SVC400. Although the tornado took one of the cameras the footage survived and remarkably the SVC400 lived to see another day. In May of 2013 the same SVC400, now mounted in a new vehicle, recorded my near-death experience in a flash flood. I had turned around to avoid a flooded road ahead only to discover that what I thought was a water-covered driveway was in fact a swollen creek. The vehicle plunged to the bottom of the creek. Luckily I was able to escape with only seconds to spare. The following day I recovered my SVC400 after being under water for more than 12 hours. I and was surprised that my recordings were all intact up until the time the vehicle lost power. Amazingly, after washing the mud and gravel out of the SVC400 and allowing it to dry out it continued to work! The SVC400 is affordable, highly flexible, easy to install, and is quite durable. While I wouldn't recommend taking it into a tornado or driving it into a creek I am extremely pleased with its quality and survivability. The footage obtained from my encounters is being used to train others how to avoid the mistakes I made. A picture is worth a thousand words and hopefully my video will save the lives of others."
"The cameras have definitely improved the behaviour of the chauffeurs because our at fault accident rate has reduced by almost half to about four or five accidents per month compared with the same five month period last year. I would estimate we will save about $95,000 a year based on fewer accidents and because we will be less likely to be targeted by 'cash for crash' fraud. We also expect our insurance premiums to reduce next year."
"This year I’m taking no chances with the car and for insurance purposes I have fitted a SmartWitness SVC1080 camera on the windscreen of the car. It’s an HD CCTV vehicle camera that records any incident and can be used as evidence of who is at fault if you are in a crash. Pretty important for me as I don’t want to have to pay for a new Caterham if someone totals this."
"Video footage is a key part of any telematics offering nowadays and we looked at lots of other solutions to incorporate with our BigChange system but SmartWitness was the clear winner, based on spec, features, innovation, value, reliability, quality, support, and price."
"The camera evidence provided through the SmartWitness technology is a huge help for drivers who have a vehicle accident, whether it’s for an insurance purposes or defending false claim by another driver. Demand for camera integration in cars, van and lorries is increasing, and we’re glad to deliver further safety enhancements that are both preventative and retrospective by offering integrated SmartWitness cameras to Masternaut customers across the market."
"SmartWitness cameras have made such a difference to us and pretty much ended those 50:50 debates you used to have following accidents. These days, we just view the footage and know exactly who is to blame. It makes the whole claims system so much simpler and cheaper."
"The KP1 has been nothing short of outstanding for our business. We finally have a reliable and affordable camera system, in our fleet of almost 100 vehicles, that we use regularly for quality control purposes. I am also very impressed with the variety of options available in these systems. From their sales team, to the finished product and customer support, every aspect of this company has been outstanding and a pleasure to work with."
"With an average bus accident cost of nearly $20,000, we chose to investigate On-Board Camera Systems to keep the streets, our drivers and most importantly the children safe. We wanted to see what was happening inside and outside as well as what the driver was doing. After testing more than 10 camera systems, most of them without any differentiators, we decided on the SmartWitness Platform with its Live Streaming Capabilities. Accidents are inevitable and not everyone is honest...cameras don’t lie. With 20,000 lbs of weight and up to 72 children onboard, we have a responsibility we take very seriously. SmartWitness allows us to retrieve data from the vehicle in real-time, ascertain fault immediately and take immediate action. Our clients really appreciate the instantaneous review"
"We have saved the cost of the SmartWitness systems within six months, and now there’s no way I would consider sending out any of our vehicles without a SmartWitness camera installed."
"By incorporating SmartWitness cameras into our customer’s vehicles, we strengthen our focus on improved driver safety and help fleets reduce risk and save costs.

"Cameras are an increasingly important part of a fleet operator’s compliance and safety tool kit. I’m very pleased with the way that (SmartWitness) video footage flows through into 'Coretex 360' where it can be viewed in context quickly and easily by anyone that needs it. With safety now very much at the forefront of every fleet operators mind, having the ability to see what the driver sees is critically important. With an integrated solution that includes cameras, fatigue management and ELD, operators can move one step closer to having a single point of operational truth that they can rely on."
